. >> does it surprise you that the united states doesn't take any other actions other than what they call nonlethal support? do it surprise you they don't want to arm the rebels, for instance or talk about a no-fly zone or buffer zone or safe zones? >> translator: right now there are certain things being expected from the united states. the united states had not yet catered to those expectations. maybe it's because of the elections, maybe it's because of the pre-election situation in the states. nobody has spoken to us about their reasons and they are not obliged to state anything. we're very thankful and pleased they have stated they are against this regime. >> it's good to see you. hearing what he said, can you give me a broader context of what he was explaining? >> reporter: i think he's very frustrated. he's a good friend of united states and a good friend to the obama administration. he didn't want to come out and directly sledge hammer the obama administration but he did say he is frustrated. perhaps the elections are playing part in the fact that the united states is not leading in
to be trouble and you represent the united states. i'm not sure why due need a warning for that one? >> it is not rocket science. it's been looking at trends and anything out that there will help you decide t 9/11 is one day you are supposed to increase security. you have to ask yourself why the benghazi consul late which is in the middle of the al-qaeda operating around there and he will sharia are and they had no forces, no security forces forever. they are depending militia forces to protect them. >> in view row, the united states government, the government said the protests there were the result of this youtube video and in the u.s. embassy evicinity sweated out offer aboll justs shortly after the protest began. now it is, according to her recording. they haven't released the sheik in our custody for the 1997 world trade center becoming. >> we have to be concerned there. either the administration is showing incredible in competition or they are destroying the truth to the american people, either one is horrible why would they? what's in it for them to dissport it. >> i think the
with an incumbent president of the united states. i've got a very effective campaign that's doing a very good job. but not everything i say is elegant, and i want to make it very clear, i want to help 100% of the american people. >> all right. just because i have no discipline, richard wolffe, take 20 seconds to double down on those comments. your response. >> well, you're not tied if you're at least five points down in ohio. you can't win if you're that far down in ohio. both candidates, let's face it, the president and mitt romney, have made more than their fair share of mistakes here. the difference here is that mitt romney's mistakes are of his own making, by and large. there aren't any more feet that he can shoot himself in. and the problem is that the tax situation, his comments have come from him, and the president can argue, well, you know, you can disagree with all of my approaches, but there were other things at play in the economic crisis that led to the unemployment we've got. that's the difference we're at right now. >> sam stein, it seems he sort of blamed himself for it and said it
of the united states off the ground. i'll talk to the man who did it. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with important news just in to "the situation room." our brand-new poll shows president obama receiving a significant bounce from the democratic national convention. he now leads mitt romney 52% to 46%. that's among likely voters nationwide. all this according to our brand-new cnn orc poll. let's get to our chief national correspondent, john king, over at the magic wall. >> a six-point national lead. the president benefited most from his convention. let's look deeper at the other numbers. let's look here -- here's one of the big reasons why. this is among men. the republicans almost always have a big advantage among men. the president, this is a tie essentially. the president with a one-point lead among men. but look at the difference. going into the democratic convention, it was governor romney who had a big lead a 12-point lead among men. that's one of the reasons the president comes out of his convention in much stronger shape. then you ask people who's best in
security at greater risk. >> last friday, mitt romney brought up the president of the united states, his birth certificate. they can't get away from that, but wait a minute, it was just a joke. but the day after the republican convention, speakers lined up to question president obama's americanness. is he really an american? president obama has been president of the united states for nearly four years and republicans are still questioning his values as an american citizen. it's the twisted version of the truth and it was embraced by everybody in the room. >> barack obama has a problem with the american dream. >> obama is stifling the american dream, primarily because it isn't his dream. >> what this administration has in mind for america isn't a renewal. it's a great leveling out. >> barack obama seems intent on enrolling more people on food stamps. >> president obama began his presidency with an apology tour. >> i know you're about ready to throw up, but please bear with me. it wouldn't be the republican national convention without more dishonesty about welfare and medicare. the republi
. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and government actually working together to promote growth and broadly share prosperity. you see, we believe that we
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
of the island and here in the united states, the east coast is not out of play either. so let's get right to alexandra steel. she is at cnn hurricane headquarters. what can you tell us? >> it's not as bad as it could be for bermuda. bermuda sees hurricanes about three every ten years and it's moving farther east than we'd seen it before. this is the atlantic. we do have two hurricanes at play. there's leslie. here is michael. this is a category 2, it is small, tight, powerful. 105-mile-an-hour winds. good news, won't affect anyone, won't affect land. so with that, our attention turns to leslie. now, right now it's category 1, maximum sustained winds at 75 miles an hour. what's happened is it has sat over the same space, kind of the cold water for the last 18 hours or so. so we have not seen any intensification. so that is the good news. here is the projected path. now, you can see here is bermuda right now, it's about 430 miles south/southeast of bermuda, expected to make the past farther east than earlier thought sunday morning. so here are the impacts. this area east of haley fax cou ha
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
in the time when the united states was a slave republic. with that thinking it is what allowed for blacks to be -- their labor, native americans, dispossessed of their land. native americans should be dispossessed of their property because they hadn't created an effective capitalist society in a thousand years. >> the thing i love about i'm ran is ultimately in her old age she took social security. you know, i suppose there is a story there about sort of -- how -- you know, we have this sense that on the one hand we don't know -- we want to make it all on our own and built that ourselves. we do tend to avail ourselves of the help, assistance, that exists. matt, you wrote a little bit about this in your piece this week around economic determi determineism. i love this. i never took the -- practically guaranteed student loan, never enjoyed the mortgage interest deduction, that i as a taker, do. you are worried about government spending. yet, there was still something that -- did not sit right about this. >> it is the -- statements that because you fall into this income gap, that your vote,
. the united states has always supported those positions. obama's people pull it out of the platform and the president chooses not to put it back in. very significant. >> sean: what do you make of -- we have two issues. number 1, the reaction to what i thought was a pretty stale, boring, cut-and-paste speech last night and the issue of the economy, the economic numbers that came out today, i mean, a net loss of another couple hundred thousand jobs, when you include the people who have left the labor force. your reaction? >> well, i think that the -- to me, i suppose in visual terms, you are right, the defining moment is that vote. i think that is likely to be remembered. but i think that in political terms, the enormous blunder was when speaker after speaker said, yes, we are better off now than we were four years ago. and that became a logo of this convention and it is very clear that the american people dont agree. and fortunately, romney is alert to it. they are pouncing right away and in all of the swing states he is running ads, where he has romney saying, this president can ask
is building an offshore oil well in a sea 90 miles off the north slope between the united states and russia. just the possibility of a disaster like the one in the gulf back in 2010 has people in alaska very concerned. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. this project has been in the work for six years now? >> there has been. there's even been a two-year delay for more safety testing because of the bp disaster that happened in the gulf of mexico. i want to give you an idea just what this project looks like. this is the animation from shell oil of the site we're talking about. what's happened here is the obama administration, it gave the go ahead to start what it calls limited preparatory activities. that includes installing a blowout preventer. we all learned that term two years ago when pb's blowout preventer failed in the gulf of mexico and launched the biggest oil disaster. that prompted a moratorium on all offshore drilling on new projects. the u.s. geological survey estimates we may be able to get more than 90 billion barrels of oil, carol, from this part of the world. that'
the world are rioting over an anti-islam movie produced here in the united states. let's get live to jim bittermann live in paris for us this morning. the last of the charlie ebdou magazine, the last time they did something like this, they were the victims of a fire-bombing. so what's behind it this time? >> well that was back in november of last year, this time around it's about the same sort of thing. this magazine is meant to be provocative and always publishes very nasty, daring cartoons. people who buy it look for that, and that's who their audience is. basically in this same edition was the cartoons that have lessed all the objections amongst the muslim community here. there's also cartoons that make fun of rape victims, that make fun of the catholic church, there's just a panoply of rather daring cartoons and that's what the magazine makes its money from. in one of the cartoonists of the magazine said he was almost surprised at the way there's been such outcry over this morning's edition. >> so then jim let me ask you a question, because obviously we're not going to air, we're not
of the united states but more condemning the attack that took place on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. people taking to the streets yesterday in the thousands demanding democracy, but more importantly, demanding an end to these extremist militias whom people and the government here say were behind that attack that took the lives of four americans. at night on friday, hundreds of these pro democracy demonstrators began taking situations into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known militias in the city of benghazi, including the headquarters of the militia, and if you'll remember, the libyan government has said that it has detained individuals who are part of that group in association with the attack on the u.s. consulate although they say the group as a whole was not behind that assault. >> thank you so much for that reporting. meantime, president barack obama and u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton will be heading to new york next week for a meeting of the u.n. general assembly. the violence in the muslim world will likely be high on their talking points. they say the p
raza that wanted to create a separate state in the united states. heck of an achievement and glossed over that. >> bob: listen, she did work very hard to put her daughter through school. went through college -- >> greg: that is grandmother. i'm talking about the mother. >> dana: starting raz virginia a big deal. >> greg: radical socialist front that -- >> bob: it's really not. it's not. main stream hispanic -- >> greg: it's main stream now but back then it was as main stream as jeremiah wright. >> bob: fighting then the brown panthers a radical group. there were unforced errors i agree but by and large i could haven't asked for a better opening con vention night. again, we talk about that. it was driven by the speeches. you can say that castro made mistakes, ryan did. >> eric: he didn't make mistakes. he lied to people watching. one taxes, one on jobs, ryan's plan for pel grant and one on ryan's plan for medicare. bill clinton, he will probably attack mitt romney, right? what he is not going to tell you that bill clinton oversaw the community reinvestment act renewal. in 1995 or so,
it to the bottom of the sea. you can take it to the north pole but ge the heutf united states of america. >> that was bat crap crazy tea party republican congressman allen west. yesterday west took to facebook to complain about president obama's united nations sech d tohow h lucky we and the world are that allen west will never address the united nations. he wrote my statement to the united nations would have been the future does not belong to thoseho attack our embassies and consulates toillur ambassadors. the angel of death in the form of an american bald eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destction upon your existence. joining me w, patckmu. can you explain to america how allen west got elected to that seat and how he currently in the polls is ahead of you by a few points? >> well, first of all, no one really knows how he got ected. 20asnntti ar. unfortunately democrats did not show up to vote. thankfully, we are getting a lot of strong polling results back. we are actually tied or up in basically all of the polls that we've seen. wee in a great position to win this november. >
it would be wrong for the united states to apologize for distance itself from this bigoted anti-islam video. well, neither our state department nor our country, nor i think if i can say so, most americans have any reason to defend this vile and previously obscure video that surfaced online from some extremist. it is frustrating for the foreign policy and the diplomacy at stake here to have someone of mr. romney's stature implying wrongly that somehow we need to defend this crap. >> steve clemens, there's a statement that the romney campaign policy director made to "the new york times" which indicates that they were waiting for something like this, they were waiting to pounce. she said, we've had this consistent critique and narrative on obama's foreign policy and we felt this was a situation that met our critique. so, steve, she's saying they were waiting for something and they saw this and they thought, okay, this is it, here we go. and they jumped out there with the attack. and so this seems to have been premeditated even before the events developed. >> sure it was, lawrence. and i think
yany plan could involve the united states. he's going to meet with new york city's mayor michael bloomberg later this afternoon. this country was built by working people. the economy needs manufacturing. machines, tools, people making stuff. companies have to invest in making things. infrastructure, construction, production. we need it now more than ever. chevron's putting more than $8 billion dollars back in the u.s. economy this year. in pipes, cement, steel, jobs, energy. we need to get the wheels turning. i'm proud of that. making real things... for real. ...that make a real difference. ♪ now we need a little bit more... a little bit more vanilla? this is great!

candidate, president of the united states, and i think this is a good step in the right direction, but i haven't seen the returns and so i don't know exactly what's in them. >> christine, the average tax rate for the -- about 30% or so, or somewhere in the upper 20s, 30s for -- >> for -- say that again? >> the average tax rate for americans is much higher than 14.1%. >> well, it is on paper. the marginal tax rates are higher. remember, don, you look at the irs tables and this is kind of a misnomer, you look at the irs tables for middle class effective tax rates, people in the middle class are paying what mitt romney pays and in some cases even less because of deductions for your mortgage, for your children, for education tax credits and the like. so, you know, mitt romney pointing out that over the 20 years paying something like an average effective tax rate of 20%, that's something that people who have been ready to be very critical of mitt romney, thinking maybe there will be years in there where he didn't pay any pricewaterhousecoopers saying he did pay taxes every year and the averag
is president or wants to be president of the united states ought to keep that in mind. >> i think he ran against a mandate because that was a politically wise thing for him to do and it helped separate him from his two opponents and he implemented it because it was what you do policy-wise. if you took this approach, you had to have the mandate. i think it makes sense for romney to sound as hawkish as possible in order to please elements in the republican base but he tapped robert zellic to be in charge of his transition. he's considered within the realist/dovish position. we don't know. i think it would be a very romney thing to do to use rhetoric as a substitute for actually costly policy actions. >> josh is pro flip-flop. you may change your mind. >> if your position is bad, then, yes. >> that's mccain's line. changed my mind. i would also note since we ran from that list, the american government under george w. bush and very president obama was colluding. i don't want to give too much credit to the president or the american power in bringing down him when he was a key ally that we've
